Lesina is very happy with her plantation business of planting taro, yams and bananas. She also recently added vegetables, such as cucumbers and pumpkins, to supplement her income.

Her requested $800 USD loan is for buying weed-killing chemicals and fertilizers, which are much needed in maintaining the good growth of her plantation. She hopes for another loan to help buy a second-hand pick-up truck for delivering her produce to the market. She is very thankful for the financial support she looks forward to receiving and paying back within the loan term.
